BRUSHY CREEK (Baylor County). Brushy Creek rises four miles north of Seymour in northwest Baylor County (at 33°39' N, 99°18' W) and runs north for six miles before entering Lake Kemp on the Wichita River (at 33°43' N, 99°17' W). It traverses an area of steep to moderately sloping hills surfaced with shallow stony clay and sandy loams in which grow oak, mesquite, and grasses. At the creek's mouth the land is flat with shallow depressions, and hardwoods, conifers, and grasses predominate in the flora.
